Kellogg India Private Limited announced the resignation of Sangeeta Pendurkar as Managing Director, India and South Asia. Pendurkar will continue to lead the business for the next few months at the breakfast cereal brand, while facilitating a smooth transition for her successor, who is yet to be announced.
Pendurkar joined Kellogg India six years ago.
The press statement announcing the resignation read, “The business has more than doubled under her leadership and Kellogg India has transformed from a small organisation to a mid-sized agile, food company. Kellogg India, with a market share of 84 per cent in ready-to- eat cereals, has been at the forefront of building a purpose-driven business with a ‘grain-based nutritious breakfast for a healthy start to the day’ at its core.”
Part of the Asia Pacific leadership team for Kellogg, Pendurkar has made significant contributions to the development of the region and the broader emerging markets agenda for the company.
Amit Banati, President, Kellogg Asia Pacific, said, “I would like to thank Pendurkar for her outstanding leadership and innumerable contributions over the last six years. Pendurkar brought in a strong strategic and consumer focus to the India business and has developed a diverse and future-ready organisation by embedding several new capabilities over the last few years. I wish her the very best in her future endeavours.”
Pendurkar said, “It’s been an enriching and exciting leadership journey to have led Kellogg India. I am incredibly proud of what I and my leadership team has been able to create over the last six years. A strong foundation for the future has been laid and I am confident that Kellogg will scale new heights.”
